My grandson has just turned 16 and is going to live with his father, stepmum and two younger brothers. He has been a young carer for his mum who suffers mental health problem. She is moving away. She is a gentle soul but has been increasingly unable to exert any control over her son and feels she has done her bit.
This is a major change for the family. My son and his partner struggle with the younger boys they have and are worried they do not have the resources to cope with a teenager who has never had any boundaries. They want to make it work.
Last weekend my grandson went to London with friends but did not return to my sons that night and he did not know where he was. I understand he took ecstasy. He has previously smoked weed. His school is very supportive.
My son tends to lose his temper when faced with situations he can't cope with. He loves his son dearly but as yet does not have the experience or resources to cope with a troubled teenager.
I feel as if I am waiting for a car crash to happen.
